As always, Gin's never ending battle against evil in Ashland completely dominated everything.
Usually I can overlook some of her mistakes as just the luck of the draw, but the initial scene at the den window played like slapstick instead of a skilled assassin lurking for information. And when she later stepped on a creaking board in a hall she had been down before while trying to catch an intruder, all I could do was roll my eyes. At this point it was obvious that the author was manipulating the action to fit her needs. Now, I realize that this is something all authors must do, but Estes is generally more skilled and less obvious at the ploy.
I also figured out a number of the mysteries fairly early in the story and kept waiting for Him to catch up and poverty me right. For once, I was exactly right. The clues were a bit too obvious this time.
Still, I enjoyed the story and it did a good job of advancing the overarching plot line as well as bringing Gin some new and valuable allies. I will continue to purchase and read this series. And if the author continues to drop references to her Bigtime series, I may even break down and read one of those.

Jennifer Estep is an amazing writer! She creates stories that hold your attention all the way through!
Thought the previous book was terrible , too repetitive. Thought to give the series one more chance and glad I did. This was more original by bringing a serial killer (not a spoiler as revealed quickly and the crux of the story) but keeping with the previous stories.
Good twists and hope that 15 was just a blip.
Love love love Gin... plot was a little predictable this time however characters are so engaging that I will forgive this small oversight. Looking forward to the next book.
